Children of Christians


I do sometimes feel sorry for the children of Christians in our church. I am sure that they would be horrified to read this. What I mean is that they have not had a chance to discover Christianity by themselves. At least I am going to church because of my own free will and seeking.
When I first arrived at church I could not work out where all these groovy looking young dudes and dudettes were from.
It soon became clear: most of them have parents who are also in the church. Now these kids seem pretty nice, though some are worryingly right wing …
.. I just hope they don’t become boxed in by the beliefs of parents and that they get to explore their own thoughts and find their identities without fear of displeasing family.
